The Fargo Forum published NDHRC's letter to the editor on May 18 (http://www.inforum.com/opinion/letters/4035480-letters-hate-mongering-va...):

In particular, the state legislature makes a lot of decisions that influence NDHRC’s major issues and that particularly impact the state’s native, LGBT, immigrant, women residents.

On May 11, 2016, the North Dakota Human Rights Coalition (NDHRC) voted to urge a “No” vote on Measure 1 on the June ballot.

In 2015, employed women in North Dakota earn 70% of what men earn. This pay equity is one of the largest in the United States of America. This fact flies in the face of a bedrock American values: fairness and equity.

For women, the median earnings increased from $34,438 to $35,549. Even in times of unprecedented job and economic growth in North Dakota the gender pay gap has not lessened.
